There is so much good music out there that you may not have come across yet, so let MGMB help you.
Playlist #7 lets you discover some great and interesting bands who master music worth your attention.
After finding out that The October Game was playing at this year’s Great Escape meant one thing – don’t miss it!
Discovering the quality of their sound through a friend a few months back and really liking their truly amazing so far released albums, I’ve become a great supporter of this alt rock band based now in Hertfordshire.
They kicked off their 7-track set at The Latest Music Bar with their recent sound cracking hit Answers and Keys. I stood in front as I wanted to experience the full effect of their music and I as I expected, they sounded just too good! Seeing these pretty relaxed guys taking over the stage and blow the audience away with their sound made me so glad I came to support them.
Luke’s vocal was spot on and powerful, and the guitars were striking. Nick, playing the viola and keys was putting a special vibe and energy to the whole performance. Playing some new tracks including their latest one Rise and Fall, a song packed with outstanding vocal and guitar riffs, or a couple of songs from their previous albums – Gatherers Hands and Concrete, it was such an exciting and unique experience musically.
These guys totally deserved the packed room ovations they were getting through the whole set and with the new songs sounding exceptional, with no doubt, The October Game is here to stay and keep rocking.
On top of it all, they are one of the nicest guys I came across! Worth the support.
I came across The October Game and their newest track Answers and Keys thanks to one of my friends I share music with and I have discovered something that simply cannot go unnoticed.
A track that has a lot of power. Brilliant, strong, dark and catchy. Its sound will have your attention within a few seconds and you’ll soon realize this is one of the coolest tracks you’ve recently heard. Haunting vocal and lyrics will get into your head quick enough and you’ll soon find yourself repeating ‘I’ve got the answers and keys in my own head…’
Once you hear Answers and Keys, you won’t be able to help yourself but play it all over again.
The October Game consists of five members:
Luke Williams – Vocals/Guitar
Nick Kozuch – Guitar
Owen Stephen – Bass/Vocals
Ollie Taylor – Drums
Nick Murray – Viola/Keys
The good news is that this alternative rock band from London has released two albums already and they are full of amazing tracks!
You can listen and download Box Of A Billion Lights and Wildblood on their page http://www.theoctobergame.bandcamp.com.
With Answers and Keys, The October Game is finally getting the well deserved recognition and whatever they’ll come up with in the future, we better watch out!
